My dad handed me a large, ‘fake-old’ clock, and assuming it was mother buying something for the house, I got ready to say “oh, I hate all of them!” Thankfully my dad interrupted and said “I got it for you.”
Oh dear lord readers, I was close to being the most nerve wrecked I have ever been! Thankfully, again, its not too bad. Been needing a large clock, just, maybe one a little more ‘habitat’ like.
We are blinded by the media with corporate messages from charities. They often demand our attention, try to guilt trip us into giving our money, portraying us as ignorant or uncharitable for not already donating, or not donating enough. It blurrs the true message. The true point in charity.
It is when a personal message, or an outreach. Not telling you, showing you, guiding you to a message you can ignore or take with you. Here is a story I found to be among them. It was directed to my by a friend, however I feel that is not the true message for writing this.
Im sure this blog will get a multi cultural array of traffic, and as such I guess most of you will not have heard of Russell Howard, nor his program Russell Howards Good News. But he has a segment called “It’s not all doom and gloom”. This segment shows clips, Stories and messages that try to highlight the benefits of charity. Shows the real life’s. The real issues. Hey, the real world.
The story I linked seemed to reflect that moral. So I hope you will just give it a read, and make your own decision.
